Kham Lha is one of the youngest residents at Elephant Nature Park, a sanctuary for pachyderms in Thailand. There, she's formed a remarkable bond with one staffer in particular, a man named Darrick. So strong is her affection for him, in fact, that she'll leap to the rescue at even the slightest hint that he's in danger.
Here's an adorable video showing Kham Lha stepping in as Darrick's lifeguard (though he doesn't really need saving).
This isn't the first time Kham Lha's appreciation for Darrick has been captured so clearly. Indeed, from previous videos, we've seen that he simply has to call her name and she'll drop everything to run and greet him. But there's a good reason why she cares for him so deeply.
